Celtics Vs. Bulls: Pregame News And Notes From TD Garden

BOSTON - The Boston Celtics will host the Chicago Bulls and reigning league MVP Derrick Rose on Friday night here at TD Garden in Boston, MA, where the C's will look to snap a two-game losing skid and end their home stand in style.

Rose's status was in question heading into Friday, but he will play Friday night. Rose missed the Bulls' last game against the Washington Wizards with a toe injury, but is apparently feeling better and is ready to suit up and play.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will be down a guard in Keyon Dooling, who suffered a knee injury and will be unable to play in the team's game on Friday or on Saturday against the Indiana Pacers. However, Dooling expects to play on Monday night.
